Non-perishables being collected to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts
Mayor Alvin Brown is leading an effort to help replenish food supplies in the Northeast as residents and public officials continue the recovery process following Hurricane Sandy.
The mayor joined BI-LO and Winn-Dixie President and Chief Executive Officer Randall Onstead and Duval County Public Schools Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals to announce the collection effort and make a call to action for city residents who want to help.
“Many people have been without power. Others have lost wages and some have lost their homes,” said Mayor Brown. “I know the images on the news may stir some painful memories for those of us who have survived storms in the past, but those images say it all. There are people out there who need our help.”
